      I found this from Holley, has anyone tried this one? I have not been able to find the Carter 172..... Jegs said it was on back order since March. Summit no longer carries the M60145. Napa, Oreilly, XL, Advance, nobody has it....

      What do you guys think? :confused:
      Depending on how much power you make I would look at the Barry Grant race pump (mechanical)

      I ran one for years with no isses then gave it away and he is still using it

      Why dont you use an electric fuel pump such as a Barry Grant 280 or a Magnafuel quickstar 300 ?

      I've been battling this issue for way too long now and am seeking some help. After my car sits for a few days I'll go to start it and it will fire up and then load up on fuel. The secondary float will be "stuck open" and will empty the entire bowl of fuel through the venturi's. This is how I've been "fixing" it. I take a wrench and pull the needle out, shake it and put it back in and voila! I go drive for a day or two with no issues. Once in awhile it will happen on the primary side as well.

      The fuel system consists of a holley 4781c and what really burns my a$$ is the $280 dollar fuel pump that was suppose to be pre-set at 7.5 psi, the holley 12-454-25. http://holley.com/12-454-25.asp

      I payed the extra money for this pump so I wouldn't need to buy a regulator. At idle the fuel pressure is about 11 psi. I talked to holley about both issues and they said that it must be the cam manufacturers (isky) fault for changing the fuel pump lobe profile and they won't take responsibility. :angry: He said I would need to buy a regulator and that this was my problem with the needles sticking. He also said I could try shortening the pump rod. I have tried new needles and even the expensive titanium needles which were worse.

      I really hate to spend money on more fuel system pieces as when I spent the money on everything last time I swore it was the last time I would ever dig into it, you guys know how much braided lines cost to make.
      Any advice on where to go with this and do you think a regulator set at 7 pounds will fix my needle sticking situation? Anyone ever have this problem before?

      These Holley pumps look sort of cheap lately....I wonder if they are now, or were always, made overseas? I know mine looked like a cheap Ebay copy when I first bought it.
      The regular 12-454-20 are made in Korea mine has worked without a problem since 2010. I also belive its dold under Jegs brand?
